Community Savings Ltd

Membership Number: AJC211 / Registered Charity Number: 094

Community Savings aims to give help and support to financially or socially disadvantaged islanders, by providing access to basic financial services to those individuals who would otherwise be denied access to a bank account. We also offer financial mentoring, and budgeting and debt advice, as well as emergency funding by way of grants and low-cost loans.

A further aim is to improve the levels of financial literacy and understanding within the community, especially among young people, and we currently deliver money management presentations to school children in Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 and are also working with other charities and third sector organisations to develop bespoke programmes to meet the specific needs of their service users.

Opening hours are between 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m., Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursday and Fridays. To find out how to become a member, support the charity or volunteer please contact the Administrator.

Volunteer Role

We welcome CASHIERS, ADVISERS and ADMINISTRATORS, to provide increased levels of assistance to our members. Banking or general business experience would be ad advantage but not essential. If you have common sense, a caring attitude and believe you may be suitable and wish to contribute to the development of the business, for the benefit of our society, please contact 737555 or alternatively, write to the Chairman or e-mail him at brian@communitysavings.org.je, attaching a copy of a short CV.

Volunteer Commitment

We greatly value our volunteers and offer an induction and training. The time required in respect of the available voluntary positions is very flexible and in most cases could be anything from just one morning a week.
